Miami, Florida will be completely flooded very soon

Imagine. Miami is about to be completely inundated in only 0.78 feet of water! It will be a miracle….happy-bouncing-smilie

The mean sea level trend is 2.39 millimeters/year with a 95% confidence
interval of +/- 0.43 mm/yr based on monthly mean sea level data from
1931 to 1981 which is equivalent to a change of 0.78 feet in 100 years.

But the above graph stops in 1981. So let’s go further south.

The mean sea level trend is 2.37 millimeters/year with a 95% confidence
interval of +/- 0.15 mm/yr based on monthly mean sea level data from
1913 to 2015 which is equivalent to a change of 0.78 feet in 100 years.

Why look! The trend line slope for Key West from 1913 – 2015 is exactly the same as for Miami….0.78 ft per 100 years.

For Miami to become a modern-day Atlantis a global flood would have to occur. Yes a global flood is certainly possible. But the above trend does not suggest anything close to a global flood. Exaggerated claims made such as this are unsupported at best and are nonsense as a practical matter.

“This past Friday, however, the U.S. Senate effectively announced it’s cool with Miami becoming a modern-day Atlantis. Senators — including Florida’s own “not a scientist” Marco Rubio — confirmed President Trump’s climate-change-bashing choice for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) head, Scott Pruitt.” click here for more

Sea Level Rise Fraud from a Government Agency

“James Hansen claims that there have been two sharp increases in sea level rise, one around 1920 and the other in the mid-1990’s. He says sea level is rising four times as fast as it was in the 19th century.” click here for a full explanation to the contrary.

Research Studies Find “no observable sea-level effect of anthropogenic global warming”

“Scientists who have recently attempted to detect an anthropogenic signal in regional sea level rise trends have had to admit that there is “no observable sea-level effect of anthropogenic global warming,” or that the “sea level rise pattern does not correspond to externally forced anthropogenic sea level signal,” and that sea level “trends are still within the range of long-term internal decadal variability.” click here for the complete post by P. Gosselin.

Can New York be Saved from Global Warming Hype?

Recent claims here that New York City will disappear because of global warming seem to be very much exaggerated.

The mean sea level trend is 2.84 millimeters/year with a 95% confidence
interval of +/- 0.09 mm/yr based on monthly mean sea level data from
1856 to 2015 which is equivalent to a change of 0.93 feet in 100 years.

 

Mr. Obama is Making Nonsense Claims About Sea Level Rise

For the Statue of Liberty to be covered sea level would have to rise more than 300 feet. Where is the evidence for this claim?

The highest elevation on Long Island is 400 ft above sea level (click here). So most of Long Island would also be covered. I’ve already mentioned The Battery. So let’s take a look at Kings Point, NY:

The mean sea level trend is 2.50 millimeters/year with a 95% confidence
interval of +/- 0.21 mm/yr based on monthly mean sea level data from
1931 to 2015 which is equivalent to a change of 0.82 feet in 100 years.

The claim Mr. Obama is making would essentially require global flooding.
